Stormfront reacts

It's kind of interesting. This white supremacist group's rhetoric is now indistinguishable from that of Rush Limbaugh and Michael Steele. At least we know where the GOP gets its talking points from. But then, that's been true since at least 1964.

Don't take it from me, here is Derek Black, the son of Stormfront's founder, former KKK Grand Wizard Don Black. The 20 year old was elected to the Executive Committee of Palm Beach County.

In his own speech at the conference, Derek made it clear that he was following in the footsteps of the racist leaders who came before him. He repeatedly referred to white supremacists David Duke, Don Black and others who had spoken at the same EURO conference as “titans.” He also claimed that “I have never lived in a country that I consider a white country… I’ve never enjoyed the good golden bag of advantage that white people have.”

Derek also spoke at the conference about infiltrating the Republican Party for the sake of representing “pro-white” views: “We could infiltrate [the Republican Party]… by getting into it in our own positions… there are thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of white people who realized [because of the election of Barack Obama] …that they are losing representation.” He also claimed that he successfully campaigned by going house to house and talking to voters about “immigration” and “affirmative action,” hot-button issues that white supremacists often exploit in order to appeal to a wider audience.

Derek seems to have missed out on a whole lot of recent American political history. Slamming immigration and affirmative action has been the Republican playbook since 1980. He's a living example of the dangers of home schooling in Republican households.
